VGE Utopia adds some much needed thinking power to the DSi situation of why it's so special.
What annoys me is that games such as GTA Chinatown wars are not compatiable with WPA security, therefore even though the DSi does support this standard, games which were released previously do not. Does anyone think games will be able to be patched now that the DSi has better online capabilities?
I wish, although I doubt it. I don't think there has ever been a patch for even the Wii. I am bummed about the WiFi situation too. I was hoping to be able to play some Mario Kart DS online :-(
first of all Nintendo is so late on the "hardware stuff" they just simply copied the psp completely; adding media and a micro sd slot Though the only plus side is that they added a camera but come on, who wants to pull out a DS to take a picture? Well anyway the nintendo ds sells so much but the games are crap to me on the other hand psp just seems so much better to me i mean u have awesome games on it when i think of nintendo i think of mario, zelda, etc. u now the "kiddy" stuff I guess Nintendo focused on "appealing" to the non-gamers side just like the Wii which also is late in hardware( the next wii to finally have HD) and how will it take??? O well i still get to play all ds games emulated in PC and at least people are working on a Ds emulator for psp Its already made but is extremely slow but the game actually runs yea it wont have the "touch" feature but it works for games like pokemon
The more people go technical , the less reasons i find to actually switch to a DSi . i'm only talking about me of course . I know i aint a target and fan of those casual warioware/mario party like stuff nintendo probably got planned with the camera . And i dont believe it will be properly used in any hardcore game ... I sure as well won't condone the forced resale via virtual console of games i already own on gba . I'd at least hope Nintendo propose some kind of free dl for those providing a proof of purchase . As for the added power , i'm against that kind of material upgrade as well . And that goes for the psp too . If you're going to really use it , it means it will create two set of ds/psp users , and then , why not just release a psp2 or ds2 already with or without ds/psp compatibility . And if it makes no real differences , then whats the point ? (other obviously that relaunching the same machine with no actual real changes)
It has the Nintendo name on it. I't like "i". You put "i" in front of anything and it will sell. iMac, iPod, iPhone, sh*t if they had an iPen, it sell like shop vacs during flud season.
All the DSi functions my PSP already has it (except for the camera thingy) plus I'm happy with my DSL, I won't throw my money in something that won't provide me anything new. (already have cyber-shot from sony)
What's So Special About The Nintendo DSi? Nintendo's audacity to hike the price up 30% and advertise it as a music player that doesn't play mp3s.
'keeping the battery life about the same' DSlite: Lowest: 15-19 hours Low: 10-15 hours High: 7-11 hours Highest: 5-8 hours DSi: Lowest: 9-14 hours Low: 8-12 hours Med: 6-9 hours High: 4-6 hours Highest: 3-4 hours so then he goes and proves himself wrong lol.
No. What I said and meant was that the battery life is about the same based on the size (capacity) of the battery, and the performance/hardware features. The capacity is only 840 mAh for the DSi whilst the DS Lite has a 1000 mAh battery. When you compare the size with the batery life... subtract 160 mAh from the Lite and you have battery life that is amazingly good on the DSi... read everything we write jackass...
I heard it lacks a GBA slot, would piss off people who want to collect lots of pokemon. considering you need to connect to GBA games to get a lot of em. It seems like the PSP upgrades, no real need to upgrade, just a bonus for people who want a new one, Im fine with my PSP 1000 at the moment, but i might decide to get the 4000 or 5000...
Erm, you can pi55 about with the photos you take and make your mates go blue like Smurfs? That's gotta b worth losing BC AND costing £50 more doesn't it? Just got one for my little lad today(traded in his four month old DSL plus £75(!) for it)as he really wanted one but, literally, only for the messing about with pics of mates on the go and nothing else. Who's really going to use it for browsing? Less than would want to play a few GBA games I'm bure yet the things sell like mad. We might not get the point but Ninty seem to be able to hit that button for the mainstream EVERY time right about now.
